Two black eyes the
size of nickels peek
from under caramel fluff,
nose twitching at the smell
of rain. Back legs
pump and kick, three
pellets clink down
on the hardwood. A salt
wheel dries from enameled
bars, a wooden chew splintered
under a fuzzy paw. Chocolate
colored ears frame his face,
nose still twitching
domestically. Lop.
Lop. Lop.
